An enchanting spot above pretty old Sète, the fisherman’s summer retreat has garden corners for all, cool white rooms, loads of personality

It’s a long way up Sète’s emblematic Mont St Clair but the car will climb for you and the rewards are huge: long luminous views over the boats and oyster beds and, with the pines at your back, the ever-refreshing sea breeze. You'll see why, 100 years ago, fishermen built summer retreats here above the steamy town. In the terraced garden, choose between a book in the pine-shaded hammock, a card game on the back terrace, a quiet deck chair off to the left, dinner for all at the front. On three semi-levels and perfect for two couples or a small family, the cool airy house has its old terracotta floors, high ceilings, and big windows for lots of light, modern kitchen gadgets in delightful 1950s dress and uncluttered bedrooms, one with sea views, while the neat bathroom extension ends in a stunning shower-with-a-view. The charming owners’ taste is impeccably their own, the place has personality and interesting art as well as peace and quiet. Canal-chequered Sète is a treasure-trove: a pretty harbour and great fish market, memories of Brassens the poet-singer, a fine museum, excellent theatre and music, boats for hire…
